the cia john brennan, testifies at his confirmation hearings later this week. timing matters. chief intelligence correspondent herridge shirge is live in washington with more on this. >> reporter: this is clash between executive powers and congressional oversight. at center of this is the assertion by the obama white house it has the right to target american citizens for death without judicial review. and while saying they respect presidential authority in this letter from nine democrats and three republicans, they are asking the white house to release the documents. the reason in part, it is vitally important for congress and the american public to have a full understanding how the executive branch interprets the limits and boundaries of this authority so that congress and the public can decide whether the president's power to deliberately kill american citizens is subject to appropriate limitations and safeguards. the letter also warns that the failure to cooperate is likely to stall or even place a hold on the confirmation of white house counterterrorism advisor john brennan to t
